require europeans to be supportive and brazil and china and india to also no longer pretend like they are sub-saharan africa. i believe that the africans can help us do that. i was against the view of dumbing doha down. i wanted to and i get a deal on an enemy, so i was making a case for being more bold and aggressive. in the u.s. constitutional system, everything has to go back to congress, but i honestly think that if you are not doing it, the congress is not going to do it for you. it is not going to come -- you will not get a trade deal driven by congress. you need someone in the united states to organize this with a condition and a vision. you also have to help people adjust to change. the other place where the united states has not kept up is that we have an unemployment insurance system that is 80 years old. we have a trade adjustment assistance program that is 50 years old. you have a workforce investment act that is 30 years old. why not take these tens of billions of dollars and ask yourself, is this the system we would design to get people back into jobs in an economy
in india. the 16th century house of worship is one of the wealthiest religious institutions in the country leave night. investigators are still tallying up the total hall. extra police, needless to say, are on site guarding the treasure. . >> happy independence day, dave ross with you. the nats are hoping to enjoy this 4th of july holiday in style. taking on the cubs and hooking -- looking for fireworks and top of the 4th, the nats up 2- 1. the former that the, alfonso soriano and two on, two out and no problems and the bermuda triangle and coming around to score, the throw and davey johnson, that is not what inspires people. top of the 6th, facing him, one run scores and jayson werth limits the damage and carlos pena is toast, 4-2. the nats tie yet up at 4. and that former nat is up and running. watch danny espinosa and that three and a double play. we're going to extra innings. the bottom of the 10th, a run or third. carlos getting wild and worth coming -- werth coming on in with the game winner. nats win 5-4 in 10 innings. >> the thing i look about that game the most, we gave them the b
. we live in a worldwide economy. the competition is no longer down the block. it's china, india and places like that. just listening to the discussion this morning, listening to the different points of view, you expand the different points of view, put them in a polarized poisonous, toxic atmosphere, congress, and it's governing. we can't govern ourselves. is this country ungovernable? it's the question in our minds and the minds of a lot of young people. where are we going as a nation. they go to washington and behave like clowns. that's a huge, huge problem. >> mike's point is spot on. even pat is saying we have a different philosophy on governing. when obama was elected he made promises. after that, he said he would close guantanamo bay. then he saw the information. after the elections, democrats said we would not extend the bush tax cuts, we did it. with larger deal around don't ask don't tell. i think it's important for politicians and those elected to want to govern and be bigger than the moment. remember, peter asked the most important question at the beginning, the real
a growth mode coming out, like many of our trading partners, like china,ike brazil, like russia, like india, not us. now we are talking about a recession. this is the first time it's been on the table. this is a recession caused by government. it is not caused by businesspeople. they want to build, they want to lend, they want to do anything possible to avoid this recession. the second half, we will be in recession if this is not resolved. recession means many fewer jobs, means far few taxes received, trillions dollars lost, i.r.a. and 401(k), trillions lost in job creation. i'm hearing about little amounts being saved here versus what will be lost in the next six months if this is not resolved. >> congressman, you've talked about something that is fundamental to this impasse, and i want to show it on the screen, because some polling indicates what americans oppose and what they support. this is what americans are for, if you look at the numbers. balanced budget amendment, which you supported. 74% of respondents. the cut, cap and balance amendment, with the spending caps and the like. but t
india. now the top court is ordering a curator to protect and preserve the underground treasure controversy. >> reporter: this is in southern india. it's a hindu temple that many extraordinarily popular. one local lawyer worried about the security. he filed a claim and they brought in a new security team. made a sweep, and what did they find? they find six vaults that have not been opened since the 16th century. when they opened up those vaults, what does it looks like? it has bags of diamond. 18-foot gold necklace. 42 pieces of precious gems and statues of gods and goddesses. those gods and goddesses were encrusted in diamond. so far five of the sick vaults have been opened up. the early estimate saying this thing could be anywhere from $22 billion to $220 billion. some of those people there believe that all that should go to the government. they should take that money and help the people who are poor in india. others say do not give it to the government. we should make that a museum. and apparently the indian supreme court decided that's exactly what they should do with it. so
whether you are in africa, china, india, or others. the bigger picture here is a combination of dealing with the substantive challenges that the u.s. and europe places, but also a sense about what role they will play in shaping this future international system that has some incredible opportunities. what does not have to look at doom and gloom in this. africa is going on average about 5% for a decade. there are lots of opportunities there. private capital is going there. china has gone 9.9% in 30 years. there are great opportunities, but there -- but they have to be seized. we got to figure out how developed and emerging markets work together in a different way than they did in the past. >> bob, another news item that is getting a lot of justified attention is the food crisis in eastern africa where 11 million people are at risk in the current drought. i know the world bank is taking immediate action in the crisis. what can be done to address the longer-term food problem in developing countries? >> well, again, there is the danger an opportunity with this. the opportunity is that if we
with those nations known as the brick countries, brazil, russia, india and china. last two have over the last five years both ranked among the top 40 most improved countries in terms of easing the regulatory practices on businesses. >> i suspect they will continue to be on deregulatory track. it's not the u.s. gets terrible grades on this. we need to do better. >> in 2010 and for the fifth consecutive year the world bank doing business survey which ranks 183 economies in terms of their regulatory burden found singapore to be the world's friendliest environment. the u.s. is in fifth place, they were third in 2009 and saw america buck ago worldwide trend. >> that trend has seen 85% of the world's economies over the last five years to take step stoems make it easier for local entrepreneurs to operate. 61 countries fared better than the u.s. in the tax burden on business owners. >> where do we fall in the rankings of industrialized states? >> ten years ago, america was plates to grow a business. it's not true anymore today. i think americans are better than most european countries, it is still ea
. this happened in india. the big cat lunging at locals and fort officials as they tried to drag him into a wildlife sanctuary. >> reporter: this is an adult male leopard. what happened is apparently these leopards have been known to stray into these villages looking for food. this leopard -- some of these pictures are kinds of graphic. this leopard was staring down the villagers for a short time. they were trying to herd this thing back into the wildlife sanctuary and the leopard attacked. the leopard lept at the villagers over the wall. they were using stones and knives and batons to beat back the cat. but the leopard just kept strike. 11 different villagers were clawed. finally someone -- you can hear the shots, someone shot the leopard with a tranquilizer gun. the cat died shortly thereafter from the knife wounds. look -- that's's amazing. you can see the cat, the left hand paw, there is blood right there. this man was mauled very badly. again the adult leopard that died. they are protected in india. this one clearly was life-threatening. amazing pictures out of bengal trying to
in india and attacked six people. according to reports, people were forced to climb on roof tops as officers chased the animal. the leopard was shot and killed after several attempts to tranquilize it. unbelievable picture there. and american airlines announcing a plan today to replace its fleet with hundreds of newly leased planes from boeing and air bus. its parent company, amr corp says it's ordered 460 single-aisle jets from from the manufacturers. >> rupert murdoch's wife is under atta the focus after a shaving cream attack. and we're going to tell you about changes that are in the works for body scanners right now. in cyber attacks. in financial transactions... in cyber attacks. on devices... in social interactions... and applications in the cloud. some companies are worried. some, not so much. thanks to a network that secures it all and knows what to keep in, and what to keep out. outsmart the threats. see how at cisco.com cisco. oh, we call it the bundler. let's say you need home and auto insurance. you give us your information once, online...

% to an effective 44.8% in 2013. when their competitors overseas in canada, in china, in india are paying a lot lower tax rate. that hurts job creation here. look, it's not the big companies anymore that are engaged in international competition. it's the small and medium businesses that are, too. we just feel that if we keep taxing our job creators, our businesses, at higher rates than our foreign competitors are taxing theirs, it will cost us economic growth. more to the point, when we keep raising taxes in washington, for ephemeral promises that never materialize, we are not fixing the problem. >> let me get to that topic. the "wall street journal" says even the $600 billion in spending cuts in stage one are worth grabbing as part of a debt ceiling vote. more broadly, democrats in the gang are making a big concession by saying the tax rate should go down, not up. >> i agree with that. >> even obama-care must be reformed. why not grab what you can? >> that's what i want to do. >> and worry about reducing the taxes down the road. >> i think that's what we're going to do. >> if they don't materi
are used to this in the united states, but in china and india, if we have not had this information. this information can lead to some of the panic and volatility situations. rather than try to control prices, which is not going to work, it makes sense to focus on those most vulnerable and most in need tariff one of the things we started to learn at the bank after the 1997 financial crisis in east asia and latin america is that the macro economics to about -- stability was not enough. if you could lose a generation that you do not have the appropriate food and nutrition. literally a generation, because it could affect the potential of children to reach potential. we have been working with developing countries at different stages of development on basic safety net programs. just to give you one, the people know pretty well, mexico started something, conditional programs. they go to the 15% most needy and on the condition that people send their children to school and people get health checkups, probably doing more for women's health that in mexico than anything else in the history of
clinton is in new delhi, india, this morning. she said today she is encouraged by talks between india and pakistan, both nuclear nations, longtime rivals. those talks just resumed in recent months. >>> u.s. officials have now acknowledged they met with members of moammar gadhafi's regime. the meeting took place last saturday. the u.s. has not said where it happened. but three senior u.s. diplomats were involved, and they say they delivered a clear and firm message, gadhafi must step down. >>> another giant dust storm in arizona. take a look. a wall of dust, again, rolled through phoenix yesterday, about 3,000 feet high. it cut visibility to under a quarter of a mile. some airline flights were delayed. a similar storm hit phoenix just two weeks ago, july 5th. >>> and the u.s. women's soccer team is back home this morning. thousands of fans greeted them as they rolled in to times square. they lost in a heartbreaker, as you know, to japan on sunday. a game that helped set a global twitter record of over 7,000 tweets a second. including marysol castro's. >> yes. >> who joins us now with w

to be sent overseas to customers and consumers and places like china, in places like india and brazil. when i say the things that we make, things that are made here in america. american economy, actually as we speak is slowly becoming more explore oriented, more manufacturing. look at some of these charts, you actually see an upturn taking place in the manufacturing sector, in the expert sector. the problem is that in the last ten or twenty years as the economy became so dependent on american consumers who are now reluctant to spend. those sectors got hollowed out really thinned out. the growth we are seeing in manufacturing, for instance, believe it or not. we are seeing upturns and we have a story in the paper today about car makers helping to drive the recovery. we are seeing upturns in the midwest in the great lakes states. they are just not big enough anymore to drive the overall economy. it used to be in the 1980s and 1970s, we would have the big inventory where they would cut back and rebuild and drive the economy out of recession and into an recovery. manufacturing isn't big enough to
china, india, and brazil. when i say things that we may, i mean things that are made here in america. the american economy is slowly becoming more export-oriented and manufacturing oriented. you can see an upturn taking place in the manufacturing sector and the export sector. the problem is that in the last 10 to 20 years, as the economy became so dependent on american consumers, they got really cleaned out. the growth of that we are seeing in manufacturing, believe it or not, we have seen upturns. we have stories about carmakers in the midwest that are not big enough anymore to drive weaker overall economy. it used to be that we would have these big inventory cycles where they would cut back from the recession and then rebuild, driving the economy out of recession and into of recovery. so, this process we are going troops is long and painful. we are starting to see the seeds of it taking place. host: goods, manufacturing, can it be services as well? guest: think in the facts of foreigners coming here. that is an export in terms of individuals coming here to work, say in restaurants.
will not be wasteing your time this summer. >> this is a big story out of mumbai, india, the death toll has risen to 21 in a string of explosions that rocked this country's financial capitol, the blast occurred in the middle of a busy evening rush hour, it was coordinated by terrorists, the explosion went off at a busy jewelry market, a business district and crowded residential neighborhood, mumbai, of course, the site of the 2008 attack where a team of gunmen went on a 60 hour rampage across the city as we all remember too well. we're going to get developments on that and who may be taking responsibility for the latest attacks in mumbai. >> and there are also new concerns to tell you about over airport security here in the united states. a brand new congressional investigation has found some 25,000 breaches at american airlines since november of 2001, a figure that breaks down to about seven breaches of security per day, and that is despite the billions that we have poured in to step up our security in our airports and you got to ask yourselves what's og on there. doug mckelway has that story from was
. the bomber concealed explosives in his turban. >>> officials for mumbai, india, a bomber killed at least 17 people, among the targets the city opera house and a popular marketplace. no one has claimed responsibility yet. pakistani militants killed 166 people in a larger attack three years ago. >>> in libya, it's been tough going for rebel fighter this is week trying to close in on tripoli, and secretary of state hillary clinton will be in turkey today for a meeting on nato's air campaign. cbs news correspondent mark phillips reports from western libya. >> reporter: the situation has changed again this morning, these are rebel fighters have retaken the town of qualesh. yesterday afternoon and through the evening though the rebel forces came back and have driven the gadhafi forces about four miles or so down the road that way. one difference today is, you can't hear it right now but a few minutes ago the sound of jets in the air presumably nato air cover. this is the fringe of the area that the rebels control, about 100 mile strip that runs from here back toward the tunisian border. the issue
populated areas of india during the evening rush-hour several areas of moon by were attacked, additional information were not--mumbi were attacked, memories of a series of attack that killed other people's previously had been looming. >> now one take off this hour plane crashed into this bear an area near to neighborhoods. in the philippines, the search is on for two kidnapped american and filipino relatives. investigators say that armed men conducted the three as they were vacationing they were expected back in manila, but the victims were forced at gunpoint on to boats headed towards an island, no one has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping or ask for a ransom. >> next week we will finally start to warm back up i will have a complete forecast coming up in just a few minutes. honey...?

, they go other places and when they go other places like china, india, mexico, vietnam, they take our jobs with them. i've heard a lot about medicare. the only party in this house who has cut medicare is the democrat party. $500 billion out of medicare in an ipab bill that is going to ration care for our seniors. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair would remind members to heed the gavel. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: mr. speaker, i would urge my colleagues to look at the congressional budget office analysis of the impact of the republican budget on senior citizens on medicare. essentially what they do is give seniors a raw deal compared to what members of congress get themselves. anda raw deal in a big way. -- a raw deal in a big way. with that i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from ohio. mr. jordan: yield one minute to dr. fleming. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from louisiana. mr. fleming: thank you. mr. speaker, but for the president of the united states who serves today and a democrat-co
a decision regarding tariffs and markets, businesses make decisions, call centers move to india, manufacturing plants move to mexico. there is one simple question. are we going to face the reality of the marketplace today? if you are 55 years old, it is hard to find a job. we are not creating them fast enough. the idea that we are going to do this and ignore the weight we have created the fabric of consensus around trade is astonishing to me. i hope we will recognize that those workers are not making this decision. we are making a policy. as a result of that policy, we know some people will be thrown out of work. we should do something, minuscule, compared to the overall budget and compared to out with the opposite, to help those workers transition into some kind of new jobs. that is what is at stake here. i hope we are going to honor ronald reagan's, george bush's by partisanship that existed on this topic. if it can pass on its own, why make this big issue of passing it as part of this? pass it. thank you, mr. chairman. >> next is senator pat roberts roberts.or >> i am not pos
they are in the range of 2.5, whereas merging markets are more in the range of 6.5, some of them such as india and china getting higher marks, so we are facing a turnaround which is very uneven with country's leading the charge and not those that were historic leading the charge and others advanced economies that are lagging behind in a way given the status of development. in the midst of that, we have clearly the two categories different issues to address but if we are to provide service and guidance, advice and recommendations and if and when necessary and if asked support. those are on the one hand the issues of sovereign debt and concerns all advanced economies ranging from japan to the united states, but clearly with a focus as you write about it as we know with a focus on the year autozone and in particular a country such as greece. on the other hand, when we look at emerging markets we have in some corners the risk of overheating, and we obviously have the risk of inflation as well, and sometimes particularly in the low-income countries the risk of imported completion that results from a high pri
in vietnam, and a lot of the ways of the fight now, the india- pakistan war which defines what is going on in the subcontinent now. even at the end of his career and of his life, 1994, he was still in the game. he was still thinking strategically, and to him, the cold war, the effects of the cold war still were not over. he was concerned about russia, and his thesis was communism is dead in warsaw, but democracy has not yet won, and for that reason he was traveling back and forth to russia, worried about whether gorbachev or yeltsin was speaking on that topic. he got a call from president clinton, they had a conservation -- conversation about clinton's russia policy, and you could see how his policy changed along with the advice that was given by richard nixon. as i see it, that is the essence of the man. i would like to conclude by going back to senator dole's look cheap. he talks about the last sign he saw president nixon, at a luncheon held in the capital honoring the 25th anniversary of his first inaugural. president nixon stood and delivered a speech, capturing the global seen as o
for business and goes around the world as i have done to china and india and africa, and because there are suggestions you should cancel a trip like that, i think it is talking britain and down, and i think you should be better than that. in 2003, a committee warned about the media. the investigation the prime minister has announced, will we go that far back and related to understand what the committee region really understand what the committee ignored. >> one thing they are looking at is the relationship between the media and politics. >> if they had known newt information, and would he have gone ahead with the appointment? >> i explain this last week. if i have been told the proper information andy coulson knew about hacking, i would have fired him. >> could i congratulate the prime minister on taking the lead when new evidence came out to establishing an independence inquiry. having gotten that independence, can he say he will affirm with the economic tsunami democrats one thing we can do is lead the inquiry to answer difficult questions, and we focus on issues around jobs. >
and they are going to do it at a lower cost. we have to compete with india, china, japan and indonesia and viet na -- vietnam. if we don't, other businesses will compete abroad. a lot of those jobs that those positions were held by african americans. we need to retool the american work force and let me tell you why there are numbers that are disproportionate with african americans. i don't want people doing what they did in the last 400 years. they say because they don't want to work and we have heard that unfortunately over the years. the only reason we know what the numbers are are because those are the individuals who are out seeking work and that's how we know that the unemployment numbers are what theyr but keep in mind, nobody probably thinks about this, every time you read about a state laying off workers , a municipality laying off firefighters or police officers or if you find any government agency laying off, it means that the number of african americans who are unemployed will rise and the reason for that is african americans disproportionately seek work in the government. we have done
business. our capital can go anywhere in the world, india, china, vietnam, canada, mexico. it can go anywhere. and when you start raising taxes on our job creators and you scratch your head and wonder why they are leaving, it is pretty obvious. we see it in a smammer level in our states where we see more regulation and more taxes in our states like california. all of a sudden, businesses pack up and go to another state that has better rules and regulations and taxes. that happens on a broader scale right here in america. you raise the cost of business, you kill jobs in america. in the end, does it hurt these businesses? no. the people that are hurt are our constituents, our families, our people in our districts that are yes or noing for opportunities, yes or no -- yearning for a job. >> war will it take -- mr. griffin: what will it take tore folks to wobbeder why businesses are leaving the country. they want to point the finger to someone else, some third party, some external cause. maybe we should think about the fact that the policies adopted by the federal government have an impac
, the president that i knew as i came in india, i'm 75, and he created the most debt in the world anybody can hear. then they brought the champion, bush. bush -- the whole war. we were left with the largest debt. i'm a republican. i agree to elect mr. obama. he got the champions. and it's ok to spend the money for -- host: in the meantime, sir -- caller: they have created nothing but messes. host: in the meantime, have you made an attempt to get in touch with your congressman or senator to let them know? caller: yes, i did contact them for the last 70 years and they just gave me lip service and they hardly understand what i am talking about. host: chris in danville, virginia. on our line for democrats. go ahead. caller: i've been watching the coverage and yeah, i've been shooting e-mails back and forth to my representatives and honestly, the only thing that i've been able to figure out so far, the other side's not willing to compromise. they're not willing to talk. they're being to be and act like children. and as a democrat and trusting my country and my government and knowing that this entire co
you are in africa, china, india or others. the biggest picture here is a combination of dealing with the substance and -- with the substantive challenges that europe, the u.s. and japan face, but also what role will we play in shaping the international system. if we have some incredible opportunities. we do not have to look at gloom and doom in this. there are lots of opportunities in africa. china has grown. it depends on how you look at the world, the pair are great opportunities, but they have to be seized and we -- but there are great opportunities, and i have to be seized. >> world bank president robert selleck earlier today. we are waiting to take you live in just a moment back to just outside the senate chamber. we're hoping to hear from senators following the caucus this morning with senator harry reid and others. it looks like there will be taking up the deficit and debt reduction plan. it looks like they're dealing with morning business through 3:00 this afternoon. meanwhile, and the house side, the house rules committee will meet to take up the revised boehner package
to compete with china, india and europe on the global change. my amendment is about priorities, the priorities of the people we represent, because i face slashing programs for seniors, young people, middle class, all because we are afraid of the influence of big oil? that is wrong on so many levels. i come from a family of entrepreneurs. my mom started a small business and my father helped grow a business from four to 3,200. i get it. i have tremendous respect for companies to have grown to that size. if they have a corporate jet, i don't begrudge them. that's great. but we agree our deficit must be reduced and why can't we ask them, people with big oil and corporate jets give us a hand and make this country great. you know, a hardware store in a county in my district, how is it they pay more in taxes than the big companies that are shipping jobs overseas? i can't explain that to that family. i cannot do that. and my constituents are hurting in upstate new york. some of them at the time of huge corporate profits can hardly afford to fill their gas tanks. there is one value we s
or will the leadership pass to china or india or to some other place? this is the great issue confronting the people of the united states, and it's the great issue confronting us here in congress as well. let's get our fiscal house in order. thank you, mr. speaker, and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from new jersey yields back the balance of his time. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. quigley, for five minutes. mr. quigley: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, an american president once wrote a letter to the senate majority leader urging him to raise the debt ceiling. the president wrote, "the consequences of a serious prospect of default for the united states is impossible to predict and awesome to contemplate. denegation of the full credit of the united states would have substantial impact on the domestic financial markets and on the value of the dollar in exchange markets." that president's name was ronald reagan and the year was 1983. he closes under the senate majority leader howard baker saying, the risks, the costs, the incalcul
. this bill says companies have a right to outsource work to china, india, or wherever, even when they break the law when they do it. that is why this bill should be named the job out sorcerers bill of rights. republican intentions are clear. first they are coming for workers' rights, and then their jobs. today, in the american workplace, it is illegal to retaliate on workers exercising their rights under the laws of the country. these rights include the right to include and form a union, the right to strike, or even the right to sign a petition, asking for a raise or better safety equipment. but under this bill, these red become meaningless because there will be no effective remedy when jobs are outsourced and companies retaliate against those workers for exercising their right. no longer will there be a remedy for those workers. without an effective remedy, the republican's outsourcing bill of rights will make it easier to ship jobs overseas. it will also create a race to the bottom for american workers. workers will be exercise their rights less frequently. working conditions will all get
of the constitution that will result to the states india, she should be able to make that claim, and so we told the supreme court take this case even though we lost, so they took the case and in the appointed a private lawyer to argue with the government would have argued in terms of her not having a legal standing, the right to bring the case and then after hearing the oral arguments they wrote an opinion that said that that private lawyer wasn't right for their service, vice versa, but at the end of the day after hearing the argument. >> think about the prosecutor in the perry mason series that he confessed error. there would be no novels, no nothing. [laughter] >> sometimes the courts and the car in the tory area and follow the latter in the supreme court issued but not the spirit, and one of my favorites was in the plaintiffs' court in texas they have some good places to make a living and the court had said the highlight line for punitive damage is $9 of the punitive for every 1 dollar a factual or compensatory damages. so a person who never earned more than maybe a thousand dollars a year
